New business opening soon at the Jackson medical mall

Local leaders celebrate Jackson Medical Mall expansion Local leaders celebrate Jackson Medical Mall expansion

Residents near the Jackson Medical Mall can look forward to several new businesses opening up before the end of the year. A groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday morning celebrated the upcoming “Woodrow Wilson Place” retail center.

The construction site is near the intersection of Woodrow Wilson and Bailey Avenues. The center will be home to a Subway restaurant, Cricket Wireless, Mississippi Eyecare Associates and Mississippi Smiles Dentistry.

“We have filled up all of our space inside the mall and we were looking for ways to expand," said Primus Wheeler, Executive Director of the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation. "But most vendors did not want to come outside the fence because they thought there might be some crime issues. So this is a convincing effort we are starting to expand beyond our fence and so this is our first real effort to get that done.” 

Woodrow Wilson Place is scheduled to open in November.
